Next, while the ornaments were baking, the girls made shrink dinks. I picked up this box a few weeks ago when Barnes and Nobles had all of their toys 75% off.
Next week made the sugar cookies. Dave was good about sorting the second half of the process so that the girls could start painting their ornaments.
We decided this time they would just paint the front side. Next time I do this, we will paint both sides.
After they finished painting, the cookies were ready to be decorated with frosting and sprinkles.
All three girls woke super early and wanted breakfast. I made a batch of waffles and split the batter three ways. The girls then raided the pantry for things to put in their waffles (food color, chocolate chips, nuts, sprinkles).
I bought this “As Seen On TV” egg cracker at the 99 cent store as a joke. Well, the joke was on me. This is AWESOME! The girls always want to crack eggs when I cook/bake and this is perfect. You put the raw egg in the contraption and they just squeeze. The egg/yolk comes out and the shell stays in the device. I am going to buy all of my friends this for Christmas because it is something most people would never buy. Christa thought I was cheesy, but she will love it when Charlotte wants to start cracking eggs!
After the girls ate, they wrote their names/date in sharpie on the back of the ornaments. I then sprayed them with Mod Podge Super Hi-Shine from Hobby Lobby. The holes were small but I managed to get string/ribbon through them!
Overall I would say this was an extremely successful slumber party. The girls were good about helping me clean up after each activity and when Isabella’s friend left, my house was in perfect order! Normally I would not plan so many activities, but it worked. I wanted to try out the ornaments and the shrink dinks.
